This blog is about fat and whatever else I feel like. I am a happy, healthy fat person with a little chip on my shoulder about our society's attitude towards fat. I also happen to be a liberal, and I am irritated by liberals who have an irrational hatred of fat people. Being fat does NOT make you a spokesmodel for the megaconsumerist bigger-is-better mentality that liberals love to hate. Surprise -- you can live an active, environmentally conscious life and leave a 'small footprint' even if you have a 'big ass'!
